Publisher's Summary

Everyone in Gatlin has a story....

Before she met and married Mitchell Wate, the beautiful and brilliant Lila Jane Evers was an honors student at Duke University. Studying late into the night in the rare books library, she is captivated by a single line of text on an old piece of parchment: "In the Light there is Dark, and in the Dark there is Light."

What can it mean?

Then, one night, Lila Jane meets a mysterious young man who may have the answer. His name is Macon Ravenwood, and for every secret he reveals, he is hiding another. With Macon's help, Lila Jane uncovers the wonders of the Caster world - the Light and the Dark. But a romance between the Incubus who is fighting his own dark side and this fiercely independent Mortal is doomed from the start. The closer Lila Jane and Macon become, the more her life is in danger.

Discover the unforgettable and untold story of how Lila and Macon fell in love in this all-new Beautiful Creatures novella from number-one New York Times best-selling authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

When Lila see's the castor library for the first time!

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the whole story!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did feel sorry for Lila and Macon...forbidden love is so heart breaking!

Any additional comments?

Glad I caught this little series on sale...I liked learning more about Lila and Macon and seeing that even after his change, he still wasn't that evil...But he understood that he and Lila couldn't be, and so did she! On to the next one!

Getting questions answered...

Kami and Margaret wrote this as an epilogue like sequel. We find out a little tiny bit about Ethan and Lena after high school. The book is actually focused on how Lila met Macon and fell madly in with him. I always had questions in this area and I'm glad they answered it!

magnificent

I'd expect nothing less from this dynamic duo, the story of Macon and Lila is touching and heart wrenching and it made me wish that they would have found a way to remain together, but, if they had there would be no Ethan Waite.
